This hard drive swims with the fishes, so you don't have to

Quick, the Feds are coming for you and it's time to ditch that incriminating data. But where to hide your external hard drive that they won't find it? Your eyes alight upon the nearby fish-tank and your favorite Neon Tetra, Fluffy, but your hard drive just can't handle the bath. Then the door is busted down and it's too late...

If only you'd been smart enough to invest in IO-Data's new HDMC-U series hard drive. A waterproof rubber material wrapped around the outside only underscores that this sucker is both shock and water-resistant (up to 1 meter). It features a USB 2.0 interface, and measures a teeny tiny 52.0(W) x 59.5(D) x 18.0(H) mm. It'll be available in 8GB (¥15,700; ~$108) and 12GB (&yen21,000;~$181) capacities later this month in Japan. A small price to pay for being able to say, in complete confidence, "You ain't got nothin' on me, copper."
